Quincy Regional Airport Begins Work on New Taxiway

Posted:

Beginning in April The City of Quincy will begin work on a taxiway at Quincy Regional Airport after getting an increase in grant money from the government.

After only receiving $150,000 annually, the city now has $1 million to spend on airport improvements after sending 10,000 passengers out in 2012.

Interim Airport Director Jeff Steinkamp says he's hopeful they will qualify for the same grant this year.

"I think we're well on our way here in January," Steinkamp said. "We need about 833 passengers per month to hit the 10,000 mark and I hope this year it's not right to the end like it was last year, and hopefully sometime in October/November we'll hit our threshold."

Steinkamp says it has projects mapped out through 2024, assuming it continues to get the grant.

"Well we have several projects, in fact probably 15 projects going out to the year 2024 so, but immediately what we'll be looking at is, in fact starting this spring in April or so, we're gonna do a taxiway improvement around the T-hanger area," Steinkamp said.
